In Love With Stamping Blog Hop!

Welcome to the In Love With Stamping Stampin' Up Autumn/Winter and 12/13 Annual Catalogue Blog Hop! I suspect you have just popped over from the lovely Elaina's blog. I thought I would showcase the very cute Frosty Friends stamp from the Autumn/Winter catalogue, at only £10.95 it is a great for new stampers and those who want to make some quick fun cards, (and don't want to spend too much as they have already bought the Amazing Ornament Keepsake Bundle!).
Introducing Frosty Friends.....

My first card is an ideal card for new stampers as you only need the one stamp, a set of 2011-2013 in-colour Stampin' Write marker pens, In-Colour card bundle, whisper white, dazzling details glitter and the festival of Prints Designer Paper Stack, (also some adhesive and scissors/paper trimmer!). 
The colour scheme is Island Indigo and Pool Party.

For my second card I also used the Greetings of the Season stamp set,(greeting is inside so you can't see it!) the 1 1/4"Scallop Circle Punch and the 1" Circle Punch.


Last but not least is a box card I made using Frenchie Jo's Tutorial. I love these little box cards they only use half a sheet of A4 card stock but with a little chocolate treat in they make ideal Christmas cards for the children's teachers, work colleagues and neighbours etc... In addition to the basic kit you need the modern label punch (I also used a little strip of acetate for the window) but if you haven't got this you could always leave the window out, more of a surprise when you open the little box. I changed the top of the box so that you can open and close it without tearing the box. Don't stick the little strip down, close both ends and trim the lid as in my picture, I used the punched out modern label to make the tab to open the lid. (This will make more sense once you have looked at the tutorial!)




See you later...
